    June 17, 2002. Our representative have participated in the 2nd Europe and Central Asia (ECA) NGO Assembly which took place in Belgrade, FR Yugoslavia, on 14-16 June 2002. 

    Some 200 NGOs from all countries of the ECA region (Central and Eastern Europe, the Baltic States, the Balkans, the former Soviet Union and Turkey) have attended the Assembly, representing a broad spectrum of various types of civil society movements: advocacy groups and think-tanks, working in areas of policy dialogue, environment, governance, gender as well as organizations involved in the implementation of development initiatives in their countries such as micro-credit or community based organizations.

    The Assembly, attended by a senior World Bank delegation headed by Johannes Linn, Vice President of the ECA region, focused on a number of key issues of mutual concern to the NGO community and the World Bank such as poverty eradication, good governance, social and environmental aspects of World Bank-supported operations in the region, the World Bank’s information disclosure policy, etc.

    The Assembly elected a Working Group comprising nine representatives of ECA-based NGOs.  The bulk of interactions between NGOs and the World Bank is country-specific and thus takes place at the country level.  


    June 3, 2002. NGO RSI participated in open competition in the frame of WB Small Grant Program.

    An $4,300 USD Grant was awarded for the implementation of the NGO RSI project "Encouragement of The Civic Engagement In Rural Area".
